Get the hang of wall systems

Cabinate with tools hanging on wall

For decades, slatwall systems have been darlings of retailers for their showrooms and shops. Today, the same product concept takes its place in home shops across the USA

I understand the convenience of this system, but I prefer my tools to be stored in either cabinets or drawers. I don't like the idea of then being out for the world to see the $$ in the garage for the praying criminal to steal.

I use to have a 4' x 16' shadow board in my shop for most power tools and another for hand tools. The burglers stripped only the power tool board so now I keep them in drawers---They'll have to search for them , next time

For several years I have used strips of "french cleats". I made them out of scrap lumber and have 3-4 on each wall of my shop separated be 1-2 feet or whatever looks good. You can then make mating pieces custom designed for whatever you're hanging. I don't have more than a few dollars into the whole system, counting the electricity to cut the pieces. Very handy, versatile and cheap to construct.

I have friends with slatwall and the system works great, however, the slats tend to collect dust which makes a major shop cleaning a major pain. Therefore, when I put my shop together I used gridwall; a similar product made of 1/4 inch enameled wire in 4 inch grids which uses all the same slatwall fixtures.

I've installed these on different walls in my shop and they work great. I made shelves and draw units to hang using L shaped screws into the back of the shelf that hook into the slat walls. Love them
